I'm currently working in a facility that produces enriched uranium. I walked into a lab the other day and I saw two 5 gallon ice coolers with water pumping in and out. There was duct tape one cooler that said 'For Brine shrimp only, NOT FOR USE WITH FISH" On the second cooler was a duct tape tag that said "Control"
I stated looking around, there were lab beakers, tubes running all around. Everything you'd expect to see in a lab. As I looked closer, I saw some of the beakers had brine shrimp swimming around. Some labeled "Controlled". There was about 8 or 9 jars of brine shrimp.
There was a log book with reminders to feed the fish. I didn't find the fish though.
My question is why would a nuclear facility be doing experiments with sea monkeys?
